Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




My burning desire
Is to cast aside
My veil of self protection
To stand vulnerable
Naked, trembling
No longer transparent
For who I truly am

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #105: Veil

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  2. Thank you Britta! I need to catch up with what is going on in your world. I haven’t had much time for reading lately but hope to catch up soon. I hope all is well.


  3. <smile> A veil I draw before my own eyes, sometimes, as much as any other observers.

    Yep. This one hits home. ❤
